Al-Najah Secondary School was established in 1995, and was based on modern educational principles in accordance with a well-established educational philosophy. Al-Najah’s top priority has been to construct a system of positive values for English-speaking students coming for foreign countries in the beginning. Later, local students and those interested in the Tawjihi program where then added to the school. The school has made education available to both sections in accordance with modern educational bases.
Quality of education its relevance to the methods of modern education are based on excellence, creativity and innovation. For this purpose an elite of the sons and daughters of Palestine who are distinguished educationally, morally and academically are able to implement this mission for example, but not limited to, the virtuous sister Mrs. Aida Hammad who was one of the first to have carried on her shoulders this mission and implemented it. We were also successful in selecting an administrative and teaching faculty proved to possess a sense of responsibility which contributes to the growth of the school and its expansion.
The school has adopted Arabic and English as its official languages of education to allow smooth communication with other cultures. on the basis of the Islamic and Arab culture. The school aims at meeting part of the needs of the local community for human resources, as far as quality and quantity are concerned to be met.
The school adopts a national Palestinian education whose objectives are to create an integrated human character, as far as doctrine, conduct, skill and performance are concerned. This is to be achieved in light of an educational excellence sought by the school. Such excellence increases the scientific, social, and cultural readiness of the students to be active participants in the service of their country and community. We also strive to strengthen the students’ national, Islamic, and Arab identity, and to promote their cultural tendency feeling.
Al-Najah started with seventeen employees, and currently employs approximately three hundred. This share in the provision of job opportunities for a good number of sons and daughters of our country. This number of employees has been involved in the growth and development of this leading educational edifice at the regional level, as far as quantity and quality are concerned.
The great success achieved in our girls’ school made us think seriously in establishing a boys’ school following the same system.
Finally, in the year 2011 the boys’ school started its first scholastic year. The boys’ school includes grades 4 up to 12 both American and Palestinian systems.
The both schools have been enlarged both vertically and horizontally. Both schools include several sections for each grade. This required the employment of more teachers to satisfy our needs.
